Re: read text file in Flash

Use the 'more' command. Here is a console log showing it in use -

VG202#dir flash:

Hi Expert,

Hi Expert,

I am being trying to run some show commands in my production environment for taking all the show command output periodically. But i am unable to get the command syntax along with the output. For a long list of show commands it is difficult to identify the output. 

I am using show version | append ftp://location

also, show version | redirect ftp:location

but the above command only copies the content as i also want the syntax to be included. can you please help me on this.

For example:- Below is the output from output file.

Actual Output:-

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

09:04:05.788 CST Fri Mar 11 2016

 

JKN12x01 uptime is 6 years, 39 weeks, 22 hours, 18 minutes

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Expected Output:-

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

JKN12x01#sho clock

09:04:05.788 CST Fri Mar 11 2016

 

JKN12x01#sh version | in uptime

JKN12x01 uptime is 6 years, 39 weeks, 22 hours, 18 minutes

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please assist me in the above query.

 

Thanks in Advance :)

read text file in Flash

Dear all,

Anyone know that how to copy to the current show command into a text file?

Example, copy running-config tftp://192.168.0.1/config.cfg
or
copy flash:xxxx tftp://192.168.0.1/

I have no problem on copy configuration, IOS, etc.

But how to copy the current show run, show inventory, show proc cpu, show tech, into a text file?

Is it we need to create a directory, then issue all this show command, show xxx, show xxx, then capture all this result and save it into text file.

I understand that teraterm or hyper terminal can capture, but i want do it in some script or batch file.

help.

you could use pipe redirect.

you could use pipe redirect. for example, to save the show vlans output to a file on a tftp server:

 

show vlans | redirect tftp:192.168.1.1/myvlanoutput.txt

 

this will work for any standard destination
